Deciding on whether you want to get a full body wax is often the most difficult part of the entire male waxing process. You may have heard some myths or misconceptions that make you think one thing, but then the facts about male waxing could sway you to have a more favorable opinion. Whether you’ve already decided to set a full body waxing appointment or if you’re still on the fence, knowing the steps of the process can help ease your body and mind. Here’s what you can expect with male body waxing.
Mental preparation is just as important as physical preparation. Talking to your waxing professional about the process can help you get in the right mental state. As far as physical preparation goes, you need to have clean skin prior to going into your male waxing appointment, exfoliate the skin gently at least 24 hours before and make sure the hair is about ¼” long. The longer your hair is, the more painful the treatment will be. On the other hand, if your hair is too short, then the wax may not be as effective.
Let The Professionals Apply Your Treatment
Once you’ve taken your preparation steps, you can put your trust in the hands of the male waxing professional. They know the differences between hard wax and soft wax, hair types, how to apply and strip the wax and more. Certain body parts require a special type of wax, which is why it’s highly recommended to visit a professional salon for your treatment. They will be as transparent with you as you want them to be, but if you just want to put some relaxing music on your headphones as they apply the treatment, then you can do that as well.
Take Care of Your Body After Full Body Waxing
Post-care is very important when it comes to full body waxing. Your professional will recommend soothing products to minimize discomfort and protect the skin. In addition, it’s ideal to stay out of direct sunlight, refrain from exercising or doing other strenuous activities for at least 24 hours afterward. The skin is going to be more vulnerable than normal during this timeframe, so the aftercare instructions provided by your waxing professional should be followed closely to avoid any unexpected issues.
